Willmott Dixon Interiors is adding to its track record for transforming London landmarks with the completion of a £39m contract from St Martins Property to refurbish 185,000 square foot of space at Two Gresham Street in the heart of the City of London.
Willmott Dixon’s interiors and fit-out specialist has delivered a full Cat A office refurbishment creating a modern working environment within the prominent corner building situated at the junction of St Martins Le Grand, Gresham Street and Foster Lane, opposite Goldsmiths Hall. A key feature includes extensively remodelled entrances at Gresham Street and St Martin’s Le Grand, while the scope also created a ground floor café and break out area with a central atrium adding natural light.
Working with the architects Buckley Gray Yeoman, Willmott Dixon Interiors also updated the M&E, made structural alterations to core configurations and added nine new 26 person passenger lifts and a ‘best in class’ communal terrace space and private roof top garden. To accommodate London’s growing number of cyclists, and making it a cycle friendly destination, there is also a new cycle ramp, 280 bicycle spaces, lockers and shower facilities.
Willmott Dixon Interiors already has extensive experience creating new internal space within London landmark buildings. Examples include creating a new home for the Design Museum at the Commonwealth Institute in Kensington, refurbishing The National Gallery and fitting-out Old Admiralty Building.
